The Field

Feb 01 2021
Magazine

Published by Time Inc. (UK) Ltd The Field is a monthly glossy magazine dedicated to those brave souls who shoot, fish and hunt way beyond the call of duty. Since 1853, its staff has selflessly brought its readers the cream of rural life, be it pheasant shooting, dry-fly fishing or the distinct merits of Cheval Blanc. If you love field sports, errant terriers and very foxy friends at hunt balls, The Field is for you.

The Field • ESTABLISHED 1853 VOL 337 NO 7398

Moving towards the light • February has a reputation for being bleak and dreary, but there is much to cheer us if we look, says Sir Johnny Scott, from pigeon shooting at dusk to the sight of the first shoots

Field in focus

TUMBLERS

Heralding hen harrier recovery

Boosts to tree planting in England

One good deed…

FIELD CHAMPIONS

Social spotlight

To do this month

Plan promotes sustainable farming

Let’s hear it for grouse moors

Kit to covert • Kit to covert Our monthly guide to everything noteable in the field for sporting enthusiasts and those keen on country life

Letters

The wonder of woodland • The past 12 months have been record-breaking for the forestry market, with the highest number of properties traded on record and an increase in planting across England, reports Rupert Bates

Country estate of the month • GREAT MORETON FARM, LAUNCELLS, CORNWALL

Six of the best: North-West England

Defying the drizzle • February needn’t be a dreary month, say Neil and Serena Cross, with one looking to the mountains for alpine excitement and the other contemplating Argentinian doves

Bye bye baby… • This Valentine’s Day is going to be a bit different for Eve Jones, who has an announcement to make to all her devoted readers

Elysian moments • Overseas adventures that extend the season are always exciting, yet few appreciate what is on their doorstep more than the sporting sort

Sporting challenges across the Channel • If wanderlust strikes, where should one consider booking game shooting abroad? The Field asks those in the know

Restoring the redleg • Spain’s wild red-legged partridges have declined by more than a third in two decades; now a conservation project aims to restore their fortunes

HOW REDLEGS CAME TO BRITAIN

The 1812 Edition, a triumph for Boss & Co • With a side-lever that fits to right or left, this ambidextrous over-and-under writes a new chapter in the history of London Bests

THE FIELD delivered to your door for just £18.99

A winter’s white-tail • So well has the white-tailed deer done since its introduction to Finland that it is now an established sporting quarry, hunted both from high seats and on driven days

Where dreams come true • As 2020 was an extraordinary year, it was perhaps more important than ever to have a goal to focus on: such as The Field’s Macnab Challenge

Paradise hooked • Searching for a place to rejuvenate the soul and reconnect with nature? Where better than with a rod to hand in scenic, accessible Slovenia

The pluck of the Irish • Horse power is key if you decide to face Ireland’s dastardly drains, fearsome banks and stone walls. And, perhaps, a desire to join the tumblers club…

No picnic at The Third Pole • A century ago, the Royal Geographical Society and the Alpine Club set the wheels in motion for one of Britain’s greatest epics of exploration – Everest

Smells like a HeroRAT • ‘Rats’ – a four-letter word to many of us. But thanks to its olfactory skills, that much-decried rodent isn’t necessarily the villain of the piece

Drink to your heart’s content • For responsible guns and designated drivers, having a drink meant water. Not any more…
